1 -- Saturday morning, a text from Kate:
This is super spontaneous but do you have any interest/ability to go to NY(C) this next weekend? Fri-Mon. I’m just hoping to see a ton of art fairs and eat some good food. haha
2 -- There is almost nothing I love more than a spontaneous trip -- near or far! It doesn't always work out that I can be this spontaneous, with less than a week to departure -- previous commitments, getting time off at work, prohibitive cost are the usual culprits -- but this time, it worked out wonderfully! Yahoo!!
3 -- NYC?? I've flown in/thru/out once or twice in recent years, but it's been almost 10 years since I actually set foot on a New York City street. I'm so excited! I think I was a New Yorker in a previous life... or I'm gathering steam and will be in another.
3 -- Saturday evening: airfare confirmation (at a great price)!
4 -- Sunday afternoon: hotel booked.
5 -- Monday: Tripit itinerary filled in.
8 -- Also a visit to Purl Soho (on my list, anyway), and within walking distance from our hotel! And bagels.
9 -- We're going to hit the ground running on Friday afternoon and GO-GO-GO until, exhausted, we board the plane for home on Monday afternoon.
10 -- NYC, here we come!! (All suggestions are welcome!)
